does any one know how or where to gat plans to build a small ground drive manure spreader to pull behind a 19-26 hp mower or atv?  does not have to be big only needs to hold 3-4 6cub feet wheelbarrow loads. Or what gear sizes would it take to drive the inside moving bars and the paddles. I don't weld but can have it done, the bed would be wooden as I do wood working and have made my own hand hay bailer and outher items for my little mini farm.     thanks mow happy

Welcome to GTTalk!

 

Here are a couple of compact spreaders in case you haven't already seen them.

Check craigslist there a lot cheaper when people realize how crappy a ground drive spreader works

We had a Mill Creek it did work but the beaters didn't go fast enough or the floor slow enough if the manure has a lot of hay in it .

 If your doing a lot of shavings it'll work okay but the tires also slide in the mud. We put 12 inch wheel weights on to help that

You will want to find one with separate adjustments for web speed and beater speed. They will do a fine job, but you need to be able to "tune them to the poop" so to speak.

the hay bailer I made was from a pine straw bailer on the intrnet. all I did was change the dimentions to make a bail 36x19x15. the bolt holes are not accurate I adjusted for the spacing by extending the 2 arm length. all length have to be adjusted for what size you decide on to make.you can search for pine straw bailers on internet there are some diagrams with measurements. I can make a bail about 25 pounds depending how much I pack. will try to post photos.   hope this is helpful.       mow happy :thumbs:

We had the same problem with the wheels slipping so we put chains on the tires.
